Fidelis Care, a statewide health plan with more than 2.4 million members, and the Brooklyn Cyclones today announced a new marketing partnership making Fidelis Care the presenting sponsor for the team’s annual Help the Hungry community event and a separate canned food drive to help alleviate food insecurity. The partnership is part of Fidelis Care’s commitment to address the social determinants of health in local communities where the needs are greatest.
“Fidelis Care understands the importance of coming together as a community to help support the health and wellness of our friends and neighbors – particularly those who are hungry and don’t have access to healthy food,” said Pam Hassen, Fidelis Care Chief Member Engagement Officer. “Our partnership with the Brooklyn Cyclones enables us to join forces as we help to address food insecurity for local families. We look forward to participating in a variety of initiatives and volunteer efforts that will benefit the community.”
The Cyclones and Fidelis Care will host a canned food drive at Maimonides Park Stadium from June 21st –26th. During that time, for every five cans donated, fans will receive a ticket to a future 2022 Cyclones game. Fans will be able to drop off canned food beginning June 21st at the Information Booth located on the concourse level of the stadium by Section 3.
“The Cyclones are thrilled to partner with a like-minded company such as Fidelis Care,” said Vice President Steve Cohen. “We pride ourselves on being active in our community and using our platform to help those in need, here in Brooklyn and beyond. This canned food drive will help address the chronic problem of food insecurity while also giving fans the opportunity to enjoy a free night at the ballpark.”
Later in the Cyclones’ season, Fidelis Care staff will volunteer before a home game to assemble sandwiches together with charity partner One Sandwich at a Time for the annual Help the Hungry event. City Harvest will pick up the sandwiches and distribute to families in need across New York City.Source: PR Newswire
